What is “The Hydrogen Podcast”?
The Hydrogen Podcast delves into the hydrogen market and discusses the development of financial potential and opportunities for those invested or interested in hydrogen. According to the show’s social media pages, the show is “for energy investors and analysts who want to learn about how hydrogen is driving the evolution of energy.”
Who hosts The Hydrogen Podcast?
The Hydrogen Podcast was created in early 2021 by host Paul Rodden. He is a businessman and hydrogen consulting expert from Houston, Texas.
Rodden’s interest in hydrogen began in the mid-90s after reading a Popular Mechanics article on the development of fuel cells. He found the technology fascinating, and his curiosity stayed with him throughout the years. As hydrogen technologies have progressed, it has well positioned Rodden, who is well versed in the advances and opportunities with hydrogen, to share this knowledge with like-minded podcast listeners.
